What is a Digital Signature Certificate?

Digital Signature Certificates (DSC) are the digital equivalent of physical or paper certificates. Driving Licenses, Passport etc. are example of Physical Certificates. Certificates serve as proof of identity of an individual for a certain purpose; for example, a Driving License identifies someone who can legally drive in a particular country. Similarly, a Digital Signature Certificate can be presented electronically to prove your identity, to access information or services on the Internet or to sign certain documents digitally.

There are four types of Digital Signature Certificate:
  • Class 0: This certificate shall be issued only for demonstration/ test purposes.
  • Class 1: Class 1 certificates shall be issued to individuals/private subscribers.
  • Class 2: These certificates will be issued for both business personnel and private individuals use.
  • Class 3: This certificate will be issued to individuals as well as organizations and this is the highest level.
